Nelson Students perform at Busch Stadium!!!!


On July 9, 2014, Nelson students (and a few former students), parents and staff gathered at Busch Stadium to watch the Cardinals in their win against the Pittsburgh Pirates.  Students began gathering at 5:30 for a very special opportunity to sing on the field right before the game began.  As we marched over 100 students to the field, we went through the tunnel and met a few of the Cardinal players who were kind enough to come over to the students and give them high fives!! But……nothing made our scream louder than when Fred Bird walked through the tunnel and begin hugging and high fiving our students as they were rehearsing their song. So much for that rehearsal!!!! Students began screaming and hugging Fred Bird and each other, they were very excited!!!

As we marched onto the field, you could see the excitement on their faces and the amazement of actually being on the field and seeing thousands of people screaming and clapping for them.  As they were announced and led by Kim Edwards, our music teacher, the students sang their hearts out and rocked the house!! They could hardly be contained as we marched back off the field, through the tunnel and back to their parents!!! What a night for our school, our students and for the Cardinals as they beat the Pirates 5-2!!!!! This is a memory that our students will carry for many years to come!!!

Thanks to all of our parents and former parents who supported this opportunity for our students.  Your assistance in all of the experiences of your child’s educational life is immeasurable!!!
